Kolkata-based jazz guitarist Carlton Kitto, who passed away on November 28, deserves this special tribute. That's where he met and jammed with jazz legend Duke Ellington. When the Jazz Yatra was launched in 1978, Mumbai soon took over as India's jazz capital. Inspired by the great guitarist Charlie Christian, he used techniques not many others knew of, blending swing and bebop. On Facebook, Banks described him as one of India's greatest guitarists, if not the best.
